Crown Point Lodge 



From the Henry T. King Collection, #625, East Carolina Manuscript Collection, J. Y. Joyner Library 
ECU, Greenville, NC. 



Extracts from the Proceedings of the Grand Lodge; A. E and A. Masons of N. C, at Raleigh. 
Tues. Wed. and Thurs., January 14-16, 1902. 

Tuesday, January 14th— A very interesting communication was read from Bro. F. D. WIN- 
STON, Junior Grand Warden. On motion of Brother BIGGS, the thanks of the Grand Lodge was 
extended to Brother WINSTON for this valuable document, which was ordered spread upon the 
minutes. 

Windsor, N. C, Jan. 10, 1902. 
Most Worshipful Grand Master, and Brethren of the Grand Lodge: 

Some weeks ago it was my good fortune to spend an evening with the brethren of 
Greenville Lodge. During that visit I learned some facts relating to the lodge at Crown Point, in Pitt 
County. The brethren will recall the interesting correspondence had on this subject which is found 
in the Proceedings for the years 1895 and 1896. 1 learned these facts from Bro. Maj. Henry 
HARDING, an enthusiastic Mason and a most useful citizen. I give you his narrative verbatim: 

"About the year 1889, 1 had the honor of presiding over Greenville Lodge No. 284, as its 
Worshipful Master. When I was serving in that capacity, there came to the town of Greenville a 
brother from the State of Massachusetts, who was offering for sale a work that purported to be 'The 
Colonial History of Free Masonry in America.' From the book I learned that the first lodge in the 
Colony of North Carolina was instituted at Crown Point, in Pitt County, under a dispensation from 
the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts. I at once went to work to locate the site of this old lodge. I made 
diligent inquiry of every old person I could find— white and black— as to the location of Crown 
Point, in Pitt County. I was about to give up the search. On a visit to my brother, Rev. Israel 
HARDING, at Washington, N. C, I mentioned the matter to him. He told me that when he was a 
small boy, about 1835, he had heard Mrs. Col. Samuel VINES, 1 then a very old lady, say, that when 
a small girl, she had the honor of meeting George WASHINGTON and shaking his hand; and she at 
that time was visiting the family of Colonel ALLEN, (Shadrach) at Crown Point, in Pitt County. My 
brother further stated that James HANRAHAN, of Pitt County, was the only living representative of 
Colonel ALLEN'S family, he being his grandson I visited the home of James HANRAHAN, about 
twenty miles distant from Greenville, and from him I learned that his grandfather, Coiionel ALLEN, 
lived about fifteen miles from Greenville, on the direct road from that place to New Bern, that he 
was possessed of much wealth in land and slaves, and was quite a Baron in his day. At that time 
there were only three courts held in the Colony of North Carolina, at Hillsboro, at Halifax, and at 
New Bern. The judges and the lawyers in passing from Halifax to New Bern and in returning always 
stopped to spend the night at Colonel ALLEN's. His house became so noted as a resting place for 
the weary traveller, it was known as Colonel ALLEN's Inn. It was subsequently called Crown Point 
Inn, in memory of the Old Allen homestead in New York, which was afterwards famous as the scene 
of one of Ethan ALLEN's victories in 1775. Mr. James HANRAHAN recollected that there was in his 
grandfather's mansion a room which his grandmother called 'The Masons Room' from which the 
children and servants were kept by stories of butting goats, coffins and other hob-goblins. Mr. 
HANRAHAN took me to the site of the old Crown Point Inn and the exact site of the first lodge in 
North Carolina is now located beyond controversy. About this time, there came to the post office in 
Greenville, a letter addressed to the 'Master of Masons in Pitt County.' The letter was handed to me. 
It was from Miss A. M. HOLLIDAY of Upper Marlboro, Westmoreland County, Maryland. 2 The letter 
recited that she was very old and destitute, and having been told that the Masons were a noble 



PCGQ, February 1996 



fraternity of men, and consipcuous for their acts of charity, she had presumed to make an appeal to 
their generosity. She stated that she had in her possession a diploma or certificate of membership, 
given to her grandfather, who was a member of the first lodge in North Carolina, at Crown Point,' in 
Pitt County, North Carolina. She stated that in her need she would gladly take any sum we felt 
willing to give for the old document. By order of Greenville Lodge, I mailed her a check for a good 
amount, the old document came to hand, and is now in possession of Greenville Lodge. 

"A subsequent research into the history of Crown Point Lodge reveals that fact that this 
lodge paid its Grand Lodge dues for the years 1776 and 1777 to the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts. 
The records of the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts were lost during the War of the Revolution and 
the exact date of the institution of Crown Point Lodge can not be ascertained. I further find from a 
diary kept by George WASHINGTON, while on his tour through the South, after the war, that he 
did pass through Greenville, on his way from Halifax to New Bern, and that he did stay all night 
with Colonel ALLEN at Crown Point and was accompanied by Colonel ALLEN to New Bern the 
next day. Mr. HANRAHAN had a copy of this dajy." 

Notes appended by Mr. KING: 

1 Daughter of Maj. Benj. MAY. Great grandmother of the present generation of Pitt County 
KINGs. 

2 No such county in Maryland— should be Prince George. 



MILITARY RECORD 

(Daily Reflector, Feb. 28, 1911) 

We hand you a letter which you will please publish as it will speak for itself. This young man is 
Robt. Lester JONES, son of Wyatt JONES, better known as Mark, was raised near Harrington's Cross 
roads, one mile from Ayden. His father died a few years ago and when Bob. rounded up the busi- 
ness, he saw his mother provided for and joined the army. His friends and those not even ac- 
quainted with him, will feel proud of him from a patriotic standpoint. This shows what a boy can 
do when he has the ginger in him, as most Ayden boys do, when given an opportunity, they usually 
make a record: 

Fort Wadsworth, N. Y., Feb. 25, 1911. 
Mr. R. W. SMITH, Ayden, N. C. 
Dear Sir: 

Seeing the other day a copy of the "Eastern Reflector" brought me back to home days in North 
Carolina. I resided for 6 years in Raleigh, and those were the happiest days of my life. What I want 
you to present to the readers of the Reflector, especially the readers who reside in Ayden is the 
military record of one of her sons, Lester JONES, by name. The young Carolinian's military learning 
has been marked by all who know him, and his actions in several cases of emmergency have been 
creditable. On one occasion it was most conspicuous at a strike in a town called Arochar, where he 
alone charged 16 enraged striking Italians and forced them to get away from a building which they 
threatened with fire. For this act JONES was promptly promoted to the grade of lance corporal in 
which grade he still honorably serves. Such men are the product of North Carolina. Hoping to see 
this in an early issue of The Reflector, I hope to remain a true son a North Carolinan. 

Michael J. MEEZY, Sergeant Co., B., Artillery Corps. 

AN OLD GOURD 
(Daily Reflector, Aug. 8, 1908) 

Mr. B. F. TUGWELL, of FarmviUe township, has an old gourd which he says belonged to his people 
through several generations, covering a period of more than a hundred years. The gourd is remark- 
able in size, as it will hold five pecks. Mr. TUGWELL says he recently placed a 3-year-old girl in the 
gourd and it was large enough to hide her when she sat down in it.

Francis Carroll was my father.' "

Mr. Henry T. KING 

Greenville, N. C. 
Dear Sir— 

Your letter received to day. Please find inclosed P. O. for $1.15 for History of Pitt Co. I feel sure 
you have the right clue. My grand mother Ann Mourning TEEL was the youngest of ten daughters 
of Micajah TEEL and there was one son Edwin TEEL [died unmarried] I don't know my great-great 
grand father TEELs name. Micajah TEEL married Gatsy CHERRY. Their oldest daughter Ethel Lind 
married Robert GRIMMER 
Patsy TEEL manied Frank TUCKER. 
Edwin TEEL 

Elizabeth TEEL married John BUCK 

Ann Mourning TEEL 

Grace TEEL married a Mr. EDWARDS 

Margaret TEEL manied 1) SERMONS 2) SHERWOOD 

Patience TEEL married J A BROWN, Chadbourn 

Susan TEEL married Stanley [surname omitted, should be MOORE] 

Pathena TEEL md }im [struck through] Allen WILLIAMS 

Cashar TEEL married John MCGOWAN 

Ann Mourning TEEL married Little Berry BRYANT 

Their daughter Virginia Jane BRYANT my mother married Francis William WARD. If the William 
TEEL is Micajah TEELs father I will have no trouble in getting in Daughters of 1812. My Aunt who 
was about 18 yrs old when they left N. C. said she remembered that Micajah TEEL drew a pension I 
don't know very much about my grand father BRYAN but he had 2 brothers Uncle Jack and Will- 
iam. This William BRYAN may be Little Berry BRYANs father. Grand Father and Mother left N. C. in 
1859 and moved to Lebanon, Mo. They both died during the War between the States and of course 
the children lost all communication with the N. C. relatives. I certainly appreciate your interest and 
am willing to pay you a reasonable price for your trouble. Hoping to receive an early reply

Mr. H. T. KING 

Greenville, N. C. 
My Dear sir — 

My husband, Mr. J. A. BROWN, has turned your letter over to me to answer as I am the 
genealogist of the family. I've been trying to get all this data you asked for, and has been hand 
copied because no one in Greenville was interested. 

Mr. BROWN'S aunt, who died about a month ago. Mrs. SHERWOOD was quite old when 
she came to live with us, and was 81 when she died. She had been with me eight years. All the 
information is I believe correct. 

Micajah TEEL was born in Red Routh, England and came to America with his father when 
twelve years of age. He fought in the War of 1812, having entered the service when quite young, 16 
or 18 yrs. He had some Texas land granted him in compensation for his service. (I looked him up 



PCGQ, February 1996 



while in Raleigh and found his name on the roster of 1812, in State Library. Its a small book, and 
doesn't take long to look through it). Mrs. SHERWOOD told me that her father Micajah TEEL made 
several trips to Texas looking after this land. Micajah TEEL's father was McKennie TEEL. Micajah 
TEEL had a sister, Talitha who married a SPAIN and had four sons, Micajah had three brothers. 
Sammie (I don't think he married) McKennie, who had two sons, Dockerv and William. Dockerv 
moved to Tarboro after the Civil War. William had children, but Dockery did not. (The SPAIN'S ' 
lived in little Washington). The third brother of Micajah Teel was James. Aunt Margaret (Mrs. 
SHERWOOD) did not know much about him. Micajah TEEL married Gatsy Llewellyn CHERRY. 

Gatsy Llewellyn CHERRY had three sisters, 1.) Jennie, who married a CHERRY (cousin I 
presume) and had a son Marcus. (Don't know if there were others;. Marcus CHERRY married Cenie 
BEST, and had issue. They lived in Hamilton, N. C. 2.) Elizabeth married a HOYT and had 
McKennie and Elizabeth HOYT. 3.) Nannie married a PERKINS. I do not think she had any chil- 
dren. I do not know what Micajah TEEL's mother's name was. 

Now, if these parties want to join the D. A. R.'s thev will, in my opinion, have to get it from 
the Patsy Llewellyn CHERRY side of the house. 

Aunt Susan MOORE of Greenville, writing in 1889 (she was Susan TEEL, Mica j ah 's daugh- 
ter) said that her grandfather was Samuel CHERRY, and that he married Gatsv (she had it spelled 
Gadsey, but I think it's Gatsy) LLEWELLYN, a daughter of George LLEWELLYN. The LLEWELLYNS 
are of Welsh descent and came to America long before the Revolution. I certainly think that this 
correct. Aunt Susan certainly knew who her grand father and grand mother were. Aunt Margaret 
said the family bible was at Mrs. BUCK'S and was burned in a fire. She lived near Greenville. She 
(Aunt Margaret) said she had seen her grand fathers Revolutionary uniform manv a time when she 
was a child. What you want to do is to prove all this from old Wills, Land Deeds, Marriage licenses 
etc. You might find it in an old grave yard. Micajah TEEL lived near Greenville, on a big farm, 
given him by his father, and joining his fathers. A large canal separated and drained the farms 
Those deeds ought to be in Pitt Court House. You will find Samuel CHERRY'S Revolutionary Record 
as a Lieutenant in Colonial Records Vol X, page 100. He served on Safetv Committee in Pitt Co He 
was also in the General

Dear Mr. KING, 

I have delayed replying to your inquiry about Micajah TEAL in order to hear from a sister- 
in-law to whom I wrote hoping she might have the data. She did not have it though. I looked all 
thro Aunt Margaret SHERWOOD'S papers and did not find it. The family bibles have been lost in 
fires and so it goes. I think if you will write to Mrs. Gatsy WRIGHTSELL. Siler City, N. C, R F D 
that she may be able to help you. Her mother was Grace TEAL who married an EDWARDS was one 
of the older daughters and I hear kept up with family history. Her brother Mr. EDWARDS is a 
Baptist preacher and he told me once he had lots of data but never did send it to me I do not know 
know his address. I enjoyed your history and thanked you for it at the time I think, but for fear I did 
not I will do so again. It represents much work I am sure. Please give me the benefit of anything you 
unearth. ' - 

Yours Truly

SEMI-MONTHLY "TITTLE TATTLER." 
{Tarboro Southerner, Oct. 17, 1878) 

Greenville, N. C., Oct. 14, 1878. 

Our usually quiet and peaceable town was thrown into the wildest excitement on last Sunday 
morning by the intelligence of a horrible and bloody murder and robbery which had been committed 
the night before almost within the corporation limits. The facts were these: John and Jacob BRILEY 
brothers, living about 4 milles from town, on the north side of the river, came to town together 
Saturday morning, bringing a bale of cotton to sell. Of the money received, they spent all by 
$27.00, having made several purchases. They were seen in town as late as 9 1/2 o'clock Saturday 
night. About 10 o'clock that night Messrs. Tom LANGLY and Hunter BUCK were coming into town 
and just before they reached the bridge they found two men lying in the road. They got down and 
found one them dying and the other in a dying condition. Medical assistance was soon had, but the 
murderers bloody bludgeon, which was found near the men, had done its work. John BRILEY died 
in a short while, and Jacob BRILEY is still living, but his life is despaired o_ [of?]. All last week the 
poor man suffered and not a ray of reason has yet dawned across his addled brain. Both men were 
stricken on the head. 
The Murderers. 

The Coroner's Jury viewed the body of the dead man Sunday and adjourned to meet in Greenville 
on Tuesday. Sunday evening Reuben HARRIS, colored, was lodged in jail on suspicion. Monday 
John MAYO, colored, was also jailed. Tuesday Frank BELL, a young man of most respectable con- 
nections, was also arrested and imprisoned on suspicion. The jury of inquest met Tuesday and all 
that day, and Wednesday and Thursday, examined witnesses. Thursday they adjourned until to- 
morrow, when further testimony will be heard. The evidence as disclosed points to the three men in 
jail as the guilty wretches who, for $27— not ten dollars apiece— murdered in cold blood two inno- 
cent, unoffending men. The men are still in jail and violence is feared by some, tho' there is no 
reason to do so.

ARRESTED 

(Tarboro Soutiierner, Dec. 4, 1879) 

W B. PARAMOUR, of Chicod township, was anested and brought here on last Saturday, charged 
with burning the store of Miss Eveline NELSON. It is charged that this store occupied by Paramour 
which was burned a day or two after Mr. LAUGHTNGHOUSE lost his property, was burned by 
Paramour to allay suspicion which had been resting on him for some time. He was also chrged with 
trying to poson the well of Mr J J LAUGHINGHOUSE. One witness, Mr John CAMPBELL, swore 
that W B PARAMOUR, the accused, hired him to put strychnine in Mr L's well. He was taken before 
J B WORSLEY, magistrate, and on account of the absence of important witnesses was bound over in 
a verified bond of $2,500 to make his. appearance on next Satruday. He failed to give the bond 
required, but gave a mortgage on about $6,000 worth of property and was released until Saturday

A YOUNG MAN KILLED BY HIS BROTHER. 
{Tarboro Southerner, Jan. 8, 1880) 

Bethel, Pitt County, N. C, December 27, 1879 

Editor Tarboro Southerner:— Please record the death of poor Henry KEEL, son of Mrs. William 
STATON. He was killed almost instantly by the accidental discharge of a shot gun, in the hands of 
his younger brother, while crossing a ditch hunting on Christmas day. His last words were, "Oh! 
Buddie, how you did hurt me!" and expired immediately. It was a severe blow to his poor mother, 
who has been prostrated with a sore, grief stricken heart ever since. Henry was a good boy, a 
mother's boy— one of the best that ever lived. The charge entered his side, near his back-bone. He 
was about seventeen years old.

Down The Plank Road 



In 1928, the Daily Reflector in Greenville, NC, ran a series of articles submitted by Abram James MO YE 
(1853-1932), in which Mr. Moye remembered people along the old Plank Road running westward 
from Greenville toward Farmville. The articles are reprinted here in their entirety, along with original 
ink drawings by Roger Kammerer of the Pitt County Family Researchers. 



Remniscenses of Pitt County 



Jan. 7, 1928: 

As there seems to be considerable interest in certain quarters in local history, I have thought 
might add something of value. — 

This morning, I am thinking of the road from Greenville to the place of my sojourn in 1867 The 
first house out of town was that of Mr. William MOORE, the father of Marcellus and John MOORE, 
merchants in Greenville. John soon was downed by strong drink, while Marcellus acquired quite a 
fortune for his day. He and Mr. Henry SUTTON were the only clerks in his store. This was what was 
known as a "time" store. Alas, before Mr. MOORE reached his three score and ten, strong drink and his 
partner in Baltimore relieved him of most of his fortune and he died a sad and disappointed man. 

The next house on the left, as you leave Greenville, was Mr. Ben MANNING'S, and it interested 
me because Mr. MANNING had invested in a lottery ticket and drew a prize of one thousand dolla_ 
with which money he purchased a negro woman, the first negro that he had ever owned. He also had 
enough left to paint his house red. 

The next house was Mr. EVANS', a quaint old house built upon a hill. That house is there yet, 
and with very little change. What made it memorable is that his girls, attired in homespun dresses' 
with shaker bonnets, home made, and having on home made cotton gloves chopped cotton. This was 
remarkable because I know of only one other white family whose girls worked on the farm. 

The nexthouse was that of Mr. Wiley NOBLES. This house now stands in the bend of the road 
and is used as a tenant house by Mr. CLARK. Mr. NOBLES was quite a character. He was a doctor, a 
preacher and farmer. What impressed 
we as a child was his perculiar rail 
fence. It consisted of one long rail 
about sixteen feet and a short one of 
about six feet, and the fact that he 
had on at least one occasion, driven 
a yoke of oxen to his surrey to 
church. 

The next house belonged to Mr. 
Japheth TYSON, who had a large nice 
scuppernong grape vine near his 
house and passers-by could stop and 
get as many grapes as one could eat 
if willing to pick them, for five cents. 
This farm was exceedingly poor and 
continued to be poor until the 
introcution of Kainit as a fertilizer. 
Since then it has been a fine farm. 

The Willis BRILEY house at Ballard's Cross Roads was a small single story house near the road. 
Mr. BRILEY went to Greenville and bought a nice white shad, and as was the custom, took several 
drinks of liquor. To his wife he remarked that he had bought a shad but that she always had a passel of 
begelings to eat it all up. M_ [Miss or Mrs.?] Betsy HOWEL, who was there to do some sewing for her, 
being as was supposed, asleep in an adjoinging room bawled out: "You need not count me, as I shall 
not taste a mouthful of your old shad." Mr. BRILEY said: "I do not mean you in particular, Miss 
Betsy."

PCGQ, May 1996 1 



The largest and finest house on 
the road belonged to J. L. BALLARD, 
who had some bloodhounds to hunt 
runaway negroes. BALLARD also had 
on his property two or three stores 
and ran a store for a while — both be- 
fore and after the war. Some desert- 
ers burned one or two of his stores 
because they thought BALLARD had 
reported on them while they were in 
hiding. One thing that impressed me, 
he always had cotton unpicked in his 
field after Christmas. Mr. BALLARD 
was a rabbid secessionest, but kept 
out of the war because he owned over 
forth negroes. 

Jan. 9, 1928: 

In my former article I wrote of Mr. J. H. BALLARD, who was dried-up, little man who was, in 
many respects, a progressive citizen. He was a pioneer in building good tenant houses. When these 
houses were finished he imported several families of Swiss, who couldn't speak English. For some 
reason they soon migrated to other parts and then these houses were occupied by the poorer class of 
native white people. He was reported to have buried a nice sum of gold and silver when WHEELER's 
Cavalry and the Yankees were pillaging the country, and lost his memorandum of the location of the 
money. 

The loss of this money was a very severe blow to Mr. BALLARD and his good wife— one of the 
very best. She believed that some of her friends mysteriously became possessed of the memorandum 
and found the money, but would not divide with her. BALLARD's son, Joe, used to make all of the 
small boys at school envious of hime, on account of the sweet potatoes he brought to school in the 
spring. 

Mr. Moses JO YNER, who was the next neighbor over Tver's Bridge, had a small one-room house 
in which three women lived, Mrs. DENTON and son, Alonzo; Mrs. Tutus ELKS, and Miss DENTON, an 
old-maid sister of Mr. DENTON. They had three beds in a row which was often in plain view from the 
road. I, as a boy, never had seen three beds in a row in one house elsewhere. Alonzo DENTON is a 
prominent business man of Greenville. Mr. DENTON and Mr. ELKS were at this time in the Confeder- 
ate service. 

Mr. JOYNER had curly hair, and a disposition to find fault, and latterly, a sneaking fondness for 
strong drink which was the ruin of him. 

Once I saw a wagon load of ripe watermelons on his front porch and in the front yard. There was 
no sale for watermelons so he gave them to whomsoever visited him. I suppose I went there to see his 
daughter, Sally, and eat watermelons, where I saw Mrs. JOYNER'S sister-in-law— Sally LASSITER— so 
very thin that I could almost see the bones in her hands. She had a terrible cought. She was a beautiful 
woman and was engaged to Amos HINES. Mr. HINES must have grieved much, as it was twenty years 
afterwards when he married a Miss ASHE of Raleigh. 

Mr. Henry JOYNER's home comes next. Mr. JOYNER and Mrs. Richard TYSON, his cousin, and 
two young ladies, went to a party over in Greene county, where in all probability, they had a good 
time, but alas these young bloods had fine, high-strung horses. Probably they were racing, as was the 
custom of such young men. As they approached Sandy Run bridge, Mr. TYSON's horse began to run 
and he lost control of him. He ran over the buggy of Mr. JOYNER, who received injuries from which 
he shortly died. 

The horse of Mr. JOYNER served his Sister, Mrs. Mary Ann ANDERSON, as a fine drive horse for 
the next fifteen years. 

Mrs. Lucy TURNAGE, the widow of Elias TURNAGE, had an Albino negro woman, Maria, who 
was a great curiosity to us as she was so nearly blind that she must of necessity turn and twist her head 




PCGQ, May 1996 2 



fast in order to see al all. She was considered quite a poor woman, yet was very kind, and I loved to visit 
her and her son Jim. 

Jan. 14, 1928: 

Mr. Moses T. MOYE's place comes next. After graduation from Bethany College of Virginia, now 
West Virginia, He took oneof his houses formerly a kitchen and work room and made a school house 
of it— in which he was principal and teacher. This was not a free school but the room was full of 
students. Mr. MOYE was a very rigid disciplinarian and used the switch much more frequently than 
is thought right and proper now. The only person now alive who attended that school is Mr. John 
LANG of Falkland township, so far as I know. He hired a negro man named Jack from my guardian, 
who was quite agile and deft with a cart round. So they were driving some cattle, trying to pen them' 
Mr. MOYE called to Jack to head them, stop them, but then Jack hit his best milch cow on the head 
and she fell dead— to Mr. MOYE's chagrin. Jack might have been a first-rate base ball player if basebal 
had been invented then. 

Mr. MOYE had a white hight top hat which, when 1 visited him, he put on my head. It just fitted 
me, and I strutted my stuff to the amusement of all beholders. 

Mr. W. G. LANG, who married Mr. MOYE's sister, was interesting to me because, he kept his 
upper lip shaved and said lip had several scars on it. He used 2-prong forks upon his table and when 
one prong broke off half way, Mr. LANG would break the other off and file both, and have a fork that 
could scarcely be broken. Mr. LANG kept out of the war by turning shoe maker for the neighbors. He 
made the old toll house his shoe factory. Mr. LANG, contrary to the general custom of the land owner, 
worked very hard and was able to get much work out of his negroes that his neighbors. Mr. LANG's 
consuming ambition was to make money, and when he died, about ten years ago, he had amassed 
quite a fortune. 

He exemplified Franklin's motto: "Keep what you have got, and get all you can, is the sure road 
to wealth." 

Two stage coaches a day passed this way and this bus line was quite liberally patronized. They 
changed horses at the tool house. 

Jan. 25, 1928: 

We have now arrived at Alfred MOYE's. The noblest Roman of them all. I remember his taking 
me and his granddaughter, Lizzie LANG, up over a store in Marlboro and having a daugerotype of the 
three of us made. Soon afterwards one afternoon he walked about a mile to see how the carpenters 
were progressing on Corinth Church to which he had contriubed a considerable sum in the building, 

about midnight he was stricken with 
paralysis, which kept him bedridden 
for the remainder of his life. He was 
the most patient paralytic I ever saw. 
I do remember that he never spoke a 
cross word to me. He was entirely 
master of himself. His memory of 
things past was remarkable but he 
could not remember what transpired 
after his sickness. He had been an ad- 
mirer and supporter of J. M. 
MOREHEAD when he ran for gover- 
nor of North Carolina. Governor 
MOREHEAD having occasion to 
come to Pitt county to but fat hogs 
for his cotton factory in Aalamance 
county, came to see grandpa and 
spent the night with him. As there 
Alfred Moye House. (Burned, purposely, in 1995) were no banks in those days, the gov- 

ernor brought money along with him 




PCGQ, May 1996 3 



to pay for the hogs. One morning he counted out his money in our dining room. I went in there and 
he had the bed— which always was in that large dining room— covered all over with Confederate 
money. That was a sight to me, and to be ever afterwards remembered. 

He believed in being hospitable, so all travelers were welcomed, insomuch that his neighbors 
imposed upon him by sending people to him who applied for lodging. I never knew him to refuse to 
take anyone. It was against an unwritten law to receive pay for a night's lodging with supper and 
breakfast thrown in. If ever there was a public spirited citizen he was one. He was a friend moreover in 
building the plank road from Wilson to Greenville and was its first president. He was for a number of 
years chairman of the magistrates who composed the county. He, with his neighbors, maintained a 
very good country school and mostly boarded the teachers. He erected a gin house and ginned cotton 
for his neighbors who were not able to build gin houses and erect screws for baling the cotton. 

There was a small log house in the yard near the "great house" as the dwelling was called. I was 
curious to know about it and was told that at one time grandfather had ventured in the silk industry 
and that this house was to house the silk worms. 

He was one of the stockholders and a director of the Pitt County Female Institute. These direc- 
tors built what is now HORTON apartment house. They ran a boarding shcool for girls for about a 
year, which was broken up by the war. 

He was a rabid unionist and never was a believer in the Confederate states. He firmly believed 
that South Carolina ought to have been made to behave herself. He believed the Confederacy would 
fail and that the negroes would be freed without the south receiving any pay for them. 

Mrs. Susan ATKINSON, a wealthy woman, who then lived on the north side of Tar River, around 
the STREETER place in Greene county, passed our house once in every two week, going to her place. 
I thought she had the finest pair of carriage horses in the world. As she had no small children and was 
driven over by a negro man. She dressed up, oh— so fine— two negro children and took them in the 
carriage with her. Cousin Susan, as we always called her, loved dearly to talk when excited, stopped in 
to see grandpa and expiated upon the war. She was an enthusiastic secessionist. 

She wanted every able-bodied man to volunteer for the war. Grandpa listened very patiently for 
some time. When Cousin Susan had run down, he said, "War is a terrible thing." 

When her son, Peyton, volunteered Cousin Susan was happy, but when he shortly afterwards 
died of typhoid fever away from home, she was converted. She saw a great light, and ever afterwards 
she was a Unionist. She stopped to tell grandpa how much she detested war. 

I forgot to mention in its proper place that when the Sons of Temperance came to Pitt county he 
and his boys joined them and that ever afterwards he was an enemy of strong drink. I used to see 
several troughs about his premises with both ends open. I was told that prior to the advent of the Sons, 
that these troughs were used to grind cider in. In his mature age he joined the disciples and was a true 
disciple to the day of his death. 

April 6, 1928: 
Mr. Editor: 

Having found one other person 
who said he enjoyed my reminis- 
cences, who makes three who have 
taken the trouble to inform me that 
they read my articles, I have con- 
cluded to send another for publica- 
tion. 




I think I neglected to tell that 

S Z™Vcrn% hl A *- ™ *~ S «" *— « - -<** ** 

man went on before and called and one behind to drive and one on each side to keep them in the 
road. A toll house upon the plank road was near our home. People who rode upon the plank road 
stopped here to pay, according to the number of miles they had traveled upon the road. The road also 
had stables at this toll house in which four horses were kept, as this was the place of two at which these 



PCGQ, May 1996 4 



relay horses were kept. As soon as the war began the plank road was abandoned, and we. that is the 
people along the road, took the plank up. Some made bridges of them but most of the plank were used 
for fire wood. If this had been a free road it would have been a real boon to the countrv, but as the free 
dirt road paralleled this road, so many who used the toll road never paid their fare. It was never a 
paying proposition. 

About a mile from MOYE's Cross Roads, lived the richest man in the communitv. He had a ten 
room house painted white with green blinds to the windows. Several large red oaks adorned his pre- 
mises and in his orchard near the road was a choky pear tree, which was a^prolific bearer. Some of this 
particular kind of pear trees were a hundred vears old. so I was told. Thev were named chokv, because 
when eager children tried to eat one in a hurry the children were sure to get choked. This as you mav 
believe, was a painful experience, but it did not hinder the children from" eating the pears. 

He had a large gin house across the road in front of his dwelling but he never did anv custom 
ginning. This man was a good citizen and neighbor, but most of his virtues were negative ones. He was 
indeed a temperate man, never in a hurrv. never went visiting, never went to church, never went to 
any gathering of any description. People said he was old. but he lived twentv-five vears after the war 
ended. 

One other characteristic, he never spent anv monev, never gave as I ever heard— and none 
except to this three boys, who were all the children he had. He gave each one a large plantation about 
ten miles apart. They were separated so that there might be no occasion of a quarrel or a misunder- 
standing. He is the only prosperous man that I ever knew who never worked anv. He was not what is 
called a lazy man but he just did not do anv work. 

.After the war he bought a storehouse and bought a bankrupt stock of goods of a man who owed 
his money. He hired a clerk and sat around the store a great deal, but he never sold anv goods. 

I came near forgetting that he had a large scuppernong grape vine in his garden and someone 
took me on a visit to him one Sunday afternoon and his wife gave us a fine mess of grapes.

OLD RELICS 

(King's Weekly, Oct 15, 1896) 



Mrs. A. A. JOYNER, a relative of the eidtor presented him two valued relics this week. They are 
A wooden table castor, once the property of Colonel Sumuel VINES, the editors great grandfather, 
which must be nearly or perhaps more, a hundred years old. It is in a good state of preservation, ' 
and was doubless a master piece of handwork in its time. 

Spoon Moulds, once the property of Isaac COBB, grandfather of Mr. Wiley COBB, of Farmville 
township, now living here with his son. The mould is of brass or copper and every spoon moulded 
would be stamped I. C. It is impossible to tell the age of the mould but as Mr. Wiley COBB is now 
78 years of age and as it was the property of his grandfather, it must be near 150 years old. It is 
known to anti-date the revolutionary war. 

We greatly prize these relics and have placed them in our collection. 



While in the country Sunday Master Ernest WHICHARD showed us a slate; now used by him in 
school, that is a long ways over a century old. The slate was given to him by his grandfather, the 
late Mr. Harry GURGANUS who himself used it in his school days' and who was past eighty years 
old at the time of his death. The same slate was also used by Mr. GURGANUS' father. It is thcker 
and a much better slate than those found in ordinary use now. 



Mr. Geo. H. JOYNER, of Chase City, Va., who has been spending a few weeks with relatives near 
Farmville, left for his home Monady. He called at The Reflector office Monday evening to renew his

Letter From Swift Creek 



Contributed by Elizabeth Ross; from the original in The Roach Family Papers, East Carolina Manu- 
script Collection, #346.i-346.2, J. Y. Joyner Library, Greenville, NC. 



Swift Creek, N. C. 
April the 12 1866 

Dear Bettie, I once more seat myself to write you a few lines. I have writen you twice since the war 
commenced but by not receiving an answer felt asshured you did not get them. I have not heard a 
word from you since sixty-two. I am so anxious to hear from you. It would seem like Old times that 
glorious time before the war. I believe all the neighbors are well but some that were here when you 
were are gone never more to return. I am sorry to tell you I have lost two brothers since you were 
here my Oldest brother Jesse and next to the youngest Symeon, he died in sixty-one with typhoid 
fever all the family had it but Sallie and myself. Jesse went in service in sixty-two February was 
carried to Virgina and in January sixty-three he was taken sick and carried to Petersburgh Sallie and 
I went after him and brought him home he died on the eight of May a kind brother is never forgot- 
ten. I guess you have heard of Uncle Jimmie ROACHes death he died with the small pox in sixty- 
four all the family had it except Jimmie. Charles Jim and Spence all got home from the war Charles 
and Jim were in very bad health for along time but I believe they are about well now Brothers 
Henry and Slade were in service. Slade was taken prisoner at Wilmington and carried to Point 
Lookout and kept eight months he got home last July. Abner EDWARDS got home in very bad 
health he lived three weeks after he got home. If you were to come to North Carolina now you 
wouldn't know some of the places you usto see. The Yanks layed destruction on Swift Creek burned 
fences, tore up houses killed hogs and cattle, stole horses and every-thing they could lay their hand 
on. But I kneednot tell you any more about the Yanks I guess you know enough about them There 
was a very Serious accident happen at Swift Cr. the other night to Dr. BECKWITH some one had 
been trying to break in Mr. COLBERTs dwelling house for the last week or two he would hail them 
and no one would answer the other night Dr. BECKWITH and Dr. PETERSON were staying with 
Mr. COLBERT and some one came as before. Mr. COLBERT Dr. BECKWITH and Dr PETERSON all 
rushed out of the house with their guns Dr. BECKWITH got ahead of the rest Mr. COLBERT saw 
him and thought it was who was trying to break in the house and fired on him the load went in 
the back part of his head and came out at his forehead Said they didnot think he ever would have 
come tew if it hadnot been for the Screams of Mr. and Mrs. COLBERT when they found out who it 
was he was not dead last night at dark Mrs. COLBERT had not been off of the bed since it hap- 
pened. K 

Since I commenced writing news has came that Jane LANCASTER is dead she died the 11th of Feb 
I am sorry for Aunt Sallie she is in so much trouble about her Bettie It wouldnot doe for you to 
come here now if you re afraid of the Small pox it is at cousin Julia CHAPMANs plantation but 
shes not there she has moved up to Kinston to live with her daughter Liz HARVEY Mr PUSSER 
and Mr. WHITEHURST is living there their familys has had it. Mrs. Sallie NELSONs and EmMy 
BROWNs children has got it there is several cases on Swift Creek and about ten hundred in 
Newbern. I hope it will stop before I get it. 

We had a very lively Christmas the most wedding and parties I ever heard of we stormed cousin 
Julia Uesie?] CHAPMAN three times before she left you never heard of so many weddins in your 

o n „ T ^l n * thmk there is man y more ma ches to fire up I dont reckon you know any of them but 
Bill BUTLER he is married to Julia DUDLEY 

We have a very lonsom time here we havent got a negro on the land there is not many of the 
neighbors that has any. We all doe our own cooking and washing cousin Lovies all left a few days 



PCGQ, May 1996 18 



ago Aunt Sallies has been gone a good while. We had a little boy his mother went to the Yankeys 
and left him thre years ago Mother took him in the house and kept him his mother came after 
him two or three weeks ago he said he would not go with her she asked mother for him she said 
she should not have him last Sunday she sent three negro men armed after him he screamed and 
bellowed siad he wouldnot go caught holt of me to protect him the negroes just rushed in tore 
turn loose and carried him off I dont think the negroes and white people can live together in peace 
Six negro men went to David JACKSONs the other week he was not at home and cursed his wife 
made her go to the smoke house and get vituals and cook for them then they took the horse and 
cart to carry off his meat while they were fixing it he and another man came in and fired at them as 
they did the negroes all fired and ran three shots struck David in the leg, he heard one of the 
negroes died before he got to Newbern I hope its so every one killed is that much better for us 

Sister Kate and Henry and Gatlin are going to school where I was going when you were in here Mr 
Fred LANCASTER is their teacher. You would not know Kate she is taller than I am we are a tall set 
I dont know that you would know me this old war has made me look so Old sometimes I would 
feel like I was a hundred I will have my photograph taken and send it to you if nothing prevents 
and let you see my ugle self I want you to send me yours maby it would make me feel like I did 
when I saw you Oh I forgot to tell you your sister Fannis was married to Mr. Thomas LANGLY and 
I also forgot to call you daughter but you must not forget your Old mother 

I want you to answer this just as soon as you get it give my love to Betty and Billie I guess Annie 
has forgoten all of us ° 

I want you to write a long letter all your trials dureing that crewel war I havent writen half as 
much as I want to but my hand is so tired and all the family are asslep save myself so I will keep 
some back for next time You must come over some day and see me cook dinner Do not forget to 
write to your dear friend

AN EDGECOMBE MAN 

(Tarboro Southerner, Feb. 12, 1880) 

We publish the following letter received from Deadwood, Dakota Territory. It tells the tale of the 
success of an Edgecombeite: 
Deadwood, Dakota, Feb. 3, 1880. 

Editor Southerner: Here's an item. "Charlie CHURCH, one of the fastest type setters in the United 
States, who is now "sticking ems" on the Deadwood "Pioneer," is a native of Edgecombe county, N. 
C. He was born near Greenville, Southeast from Tarboro. Is now 50 years old, but sets his 12 to 16 
thousand a day. Has traveled all over the U. S., and is known everywhere by the "craft." Probably 
there are only two faster printers in America. Has been here several months. Makes from $5 to $8 a 
day." * * W. T M. 



BALLARD'S X ROAD NEWS 

(Daily Reflector, Feb. 17, 1928) 

Seeing men cutting the trees on the old HODGES grave yard just east of the Cross Roads, brought to 
mind that years ago Mr. Josiah HODGES lived here. His son, Josiah HODGES, Jr., who married Miss 
Molhe HOELL, was sheriff of Pitt county to some time in the fifties. Sheriff HODGES left a daugh- 
ter, Miss Cora HODGES, long since deceased. 
Cutting the tree away is a great improvement.

UGLY CASE FROM BEAVER DAM. 

(Daily Reflector, May 21, 1908) 

Two Committed to Jail for Bigamy— Woman's First Husband Indifferent. 
Justice of the Peace C. D. ROUNTREE had a case before him a few days ago that was out of the 
ordinary and attracted considerable interest, expecially in the neighborhood in which it originated. 
J. H. MOORE, of Beaver Dam township, married a wife and them four children were born Some 
weeks ago a single man named John LACY got Mrs. MOORE to run away with him and they went 
to Richmond where they were married. After staying in Kinston about a month they returned to 
this county and to the neighborhood from which they had gone, where they continued living 
together, much to the disgust of the people of the community. As the first husband of the woman 
took no notice of or action in the matter, other people became so indignant that they procured a 
warrant for LACY and the woman. The case was heard before Justice ROUNTREE, who found 
sufficient evidence to bind the parties over to Superior court. They could not give bond and were 
both placed in jail. 

TWO WOMEN KILLED BY LIGHTNING STROKE 

(Daily Reflector, June 30, 1911) 

Young Man Severely Shocked 

Were All Working In a Field Near Blackjack. 

During the thunder storm Thursday afternoon two women were killed instantly by the same stroke 
of lightning while they were at work in the field of Mr. A. B. HUDSON, near Blackjack. They were 
Mrs. W. H. CORBETT and Mrs. Alfred EDWARDS. A son of Mrs. CORBETT, who was plowing nerby 
was also struck and knocked insesible, but soon revived. The electrical storm was very severe in that 
section of the county, while they had only a little rain. 

Mrs. EDWARDS leaves a husband and several small children, the oldest about nine years. 
Mrs. CORBETT leaves a husband and one child nearly grown. They were buried this afternoon. 

ANOTHER SISTER DEAD

Monday evening Mr. Allen WARREN received a telegram from Wilson announcing the death of 
Miss A. T. EDWARDS, of that town. Miss EDWARDS was a sister of Mrs. WARREN, and is the 
second sister that Mrs. WARREN has lost by death in the last three weeks. Her friends sympathize

HAPPENINGS AROUND AYDEN 

(Daily Reflector, Feb. 28, 1911) 

Mrs. Allie HARRINGTON, of Kinston, is visiting in town and getting data for a CANNON and a 
HART tree, going back as far as the seventeenth century when some of the older CANNONs came 
over from the mother country. Mrs. HARRINGTON is a natural born artist. Her work on those trees 
is a fine demonstration and would reflect credit to one well skilled in art as well as geometry. We 
have seen several of her beautiful drawings, among them is one character representing the North 
Carolina toast, "The Old North State."

Note attached to typed ropy; 

Records from Lula Carr Payne 

Her grandson, Carr Payne, Jr. lives (in 1994) in Atlanta where he has retired from teaching at 
Georgia Tech. Carr said his grandmother was fairly old when she put the Carr information together 
and it is not organized. Carr said his grandmother was raised where the Dupont plant is now in 
Kinston. Her father was much older than her mother. Her papers give no indication where she got 
the information regarding Matthew's wife's name and the names of their children or what her 
source was for stating that Lawrence P. was the son of Matthew. According to Carr Payne Lula's 
grandmother Carr was very elderly when she died and she gave this information to Lula 'This would 
make it far enough back where the grandmother would probably remember family members herself 

Most of the information in her notes have been incorporated into the "Lines" section as thev 
just regard the descendants of Matthew Hart Carr.

PITT COUNTY "OUT-OF-TOWNERS" 

Our fillers in this issue may help to replace those phrases on your family sheets where 
you might have written ". . . went west," or ". . . left the county." 

VISITING (Daily Reflector, July 8, 1912): 
Mr. J. H. RANDOLPH, who left here about twenty years ago for South America and has spent the 
time since mainly in that and other foreign countries, has been here the past week or two visiting 
relatives and looking over the scenes of his boyhood. His many friends are glad to know that he has 
prospered in the business world. Since coming here he has purchased the former CHERRY property, 
corner Washington and Third streets and will remodel the house as a home for his sister. He will 
likely make his own home in the western part of the state as he says he has been so much in the 
mountains in recent years that he has learned to like them better than the flat country. 

LOCAL NEWS {Eastern Reflector, Mar. 8, 1893): 
We learn from a letter that our countryman, Mr. Ed. S. ROUNTREE, has moved from Y. Calvo, 
Mexico, to Socarro, New Mexico, and gone into the general mercantile business with Mr. J. J. SPIER, 
a native of Pitt county and also well-known here. Both have many friends in this section who will 
be glad to know their prospects are good for a large business. — Kinston Free Press. 

LOCAL NEWS (Eastern Reflector, Jan. 28, 1891): 
Mr. E. A. BUCK of Balloon, Ga., is on a visit to his old home in Pitt to spend a few days with his

another year. 

LOCAL NEWS (Eastern Reflector, Aug. 5, 1896): 
Harmon JENKINS, formerly of this county, but who has been living in Alabama for ten years, is 
here on a visit to friends.

Leslie Inquiry Letter 



Found in the William H. Bason Papers, ECU Manuscript Collection, J.Y. Joyner Library, East Carolina 
University, Greenville, NC. 

526 Pearl St. 
Darlington S.C. 
Nov. 26th 1925 

Mr. Fred OLDS 
Raleigh, N.C. 
Dear Sir; 

I hope that you will not think me a nuisance, but I have been told that you have the care of 
records and are most kind about giving information. At any rate if you cannot tell me what I wish 
to find out, will you please just write and tell me so, as uncertainty is the hardest thing to stand. 
What I wish to know is the given, or Christian name, of my great-great grandfather LESLIE, father 
of my great grandfather William LESLIE (Lefslie, as he signed it) of Pitt Co. This William lived at 
Greenville on the Tar River, had a brother John (who never married), and two sisters Grizel and 
Apsley, and my grandmother Emelie LESLIE born Oct. 12th 1797 was his only child. He having 
died in April or spring 1798, at Washington N. C. of smallpox contracted in N. Y. where he nursed a 
friend, who recovered. He had only gotten that far on his return journey, and was at the house of 
an uncle there. His mother was a widow KENNEDY (nee HOLLAND) and his father John or James 
LESLIE, whose parents were John and Grizel LESLIE (nee HUME) of Edinburgh Scotland. His wife 
was Ann MOYE, also of Greenville, a daughter of John and Patience (nee CHERRY?) MOYE. Will- 
iam was a planter and merchant of Greenville. He had two half brothers John and William 
KENNEDY, and a half sister Grizel KENNEDY who married a Mr. Thomas HANRAHAN, who lived 
in Washington, N. C. This is the tradition, but would they have been his uncles? Wills must show 
this, as names of children are given. If uncles there is another generation of LESLIES in the line in 
N. C. There is a John LESLIE in GreenvilL mentioned in several places in "Sketches of Pitt Co.," by 
King, who was an adjutant in the Pitt Co. Militia just before the battle of Alamance, in whose house 
court was held while the Court House was being removed after the Co. was cut from Beaufort. 
Greenville was called Martinborough (I am almost certain that he was the father of William). He 
was on important committees also, and seemed to be a man of influence. If not it might have been 
a James LESLIE of Halifax, who was in the Committee of Safety. If you will help me to find out this 
I shall be so much indebted to you. I would like to know on which side they were in the "Revolu- 
tionary War." I know the LESLIE family record in Scotland, have sent to Edinburgh for books, 
which I have, but want the N. C. line completed. I have read that many of the Scotch had taken the 
Oath of Allegiance to the king before coming to this country, so took no part in the war. I am not 
trying to join any society (can do that through lines here) only wish a complete record, but if either 
John or James is William's father, I could join "Colonial Dames through my LESLIE line in which I 
take particular interest, on account of my name, Emelie Leslie for grandma, who was brought here 
when three years old by her mothers stepfather, Mr. Thomas DYER, of Rhode Island. Did the 
LESLIE'S come with the Arron on Black River Colony of Scotch, or at what date did they arrive, and 
where settle first? Now I wish facts complimentary, or otherwise, please, but of course prefer the 
former, and have no reason to expect them to be adverse. 

Hoping very much to hear favorable from you before long. 

Very respectfully yours, 
(Miss.) E. Leslie CHARLES 

If there is another generation of LESLIES in the line over here will you please tell me the name of 
wife as well as husband and where they lived. Do excuse the ink flows so.

1752 and moved with his family to Pitt County when he was three years old. He was living in 
Pitt County when he enlisted in the NC State Regiment in a company of Cavalry commanded 
by Capt. Benjamin CASWELL, under the command of Col. John HERRITAGE and Major John 
ALLEN. 

WILSON stated that his regiment was called out by the State, that they marched through 
the western part of NC beyond the Peedee River and they never engaged in any battle. He stated 
that he did not serve with any Continental regiment or company. 

Wilson further declared he had no documentary evidence of his service and knew no one,

Deposition of Joseph RASBERRY, going to be 73 next birthday, before W. A. DARDEN, Justice of the 
Peace of Greene County, NC, May 15, 1845: 

RASBERRY states his father was dead and his mother's family were all invited to the wed- 
ding of Willis WILSON and Elizabeth WILLIAMS. The wedding was to take place at Elizabeth 
WILLIAMS' father's house. RASBERRY and his mother's family lived about one mile and a half 
of the WILLIAMS family. When RASBERRY and his family went to the WILLIAMS house on 
the wedding day they found Mr. WILLIAMS at home making preparations for the wedding 
dinner. Willis WILSON was a resident of Pitt County and obtained his marriage license and 
RASBERRY was informed that the wedding was to be held across the county line at Esquire 
COWARD'S. RASBERRY said he saw Willis WILSON and Elizabeth his wife when they came 
back to her father's house in company of 20 or more persons, including the Esquire who mar- 
ried them. The father was uncommonly friendly with his new son-in-law. RASBERRY believed 
the wedding took place between 1787 and 1789, in the Spring, April or May. RASBERRY had 
seen Willis and Elizabeth WILSON often over the years and they had many children.

WILSON but did not see them married since they went across the line into Pitt County. TAY- 
LOR said he was told that the WILSON'S were married by one John MOYE, Esq., while Joseph 
RASBERRY said they were married by one COWARD, Esquire. HAZELTON said that both 
COWARD and MOYE lived about five miles from the WILLIAMS' house, but over the line into 
Pitt County. 

HAZELTON stated Martha HUSE went to the WILLIAMS house expecting the wedding but 
when she got there the guests had gone to John MOYE's, Esq., to see the WILSON marriage. 

HAZELTON stated he had heard Willis WILSON say, and his children also say, that 20 years 
ago, WILSON had the marriage license in his house.

Deposition of Elizabeth COX, a resident of Pitt County, before Frederick HADDOCK, Justice of the 
Peace of Pitt County, May 28, 1846: 

Elizabeth COX said she knew the marriage of Willis WILSON took place before 1794 from

Annotations by David Gammon: 

Amos Johnston lived near Old Sparta in Edgecombe Co. and died testate in 1816 in Edgecombe. 
Esther Johnston md. James Wilkins of Edgecombe. 

Mary Johnston md. Joel Battle. They are buried in Oakwood Cemetery in Raleigh, and are the 
ancestors of Dr. Kemp Plummer Battle, President of the University of North Carolina. 

Nancy Johnston md. Peter Evans of Pitt Co. and moved to near Old Sparta. He is buried in the 

Evans cemetery in downtown Greenville. She is buried in Trinity Episcopal Churchyard in 
Scotland Neck. 

The Stokes entries may be relative to John Williams' wife, but may simply suggest that Mr. Williams 

bought the Psalm book second-hand. 
The Husten entry may also indicate that the book was second-hand; no familial relationship is 

known at this time.

September 22nd A.D. 1854 

Dear Sister Mary GRIFFIN, I was up to Greenville Pitt County last month (August) and in the office I 
found a letter Directed to me from you and perrusing that letter I found that your Husband my 
Brother was dead. Which of course according to the nature of things is grief— to you an to me.— 
And I now state to you that Brother Lanier GRIFFIN is dead he died the 6th day of March last with 
the small Pox which is one day after the death of Brother Stanly according to your letter. So I 
suppose I am the only one of my Fathers Children that survives. But dear sister let us quit this 
painful subject knowing that dust we are and to dust we must return. And endeavor to turn our 
minds to a more pleasing and subblime a subject you state that Brother Stanly died a Christian 
Brother Lanier was a minister of the Gospel of Christ and died as I understand in the faith which he 
had advocated. O. Sister how this should animate our Hearts to reflect that our loss are their gain 
when we reflect that their immortal souls are now chanting forth the praises of God and the Lamb 
and will to all eternity. Sing a new song. But sister now let us examin ourselves an see if we too are 
prepared to meet death like they did and bid Farewell to all below with a smile and no sorrow while 
our souls will sore up to Masions in the skie which may it be our happy lots is my prayer. Amen. 
You stated in your letter that Brother Stanly never done any thing with that business and that you 
wer going to move to your Fathers. And that if I would authorize you. you would attend it it but as 
to that you can let it be as it is and if you ever see any chance to receive any thing from the death of 
Brother Joseph you then can write to me concerning that matter. Dear sister my Family at this time 
are all so as to be up I have been very sick but are now on the mending hand I hope. Write to me on 
the reception of this letter and let me know how you are and how you do as I hope it will reach you 
and find you in good health I have moved to Craven County on bay River. Therefore when you 

write to me direct your letter To Bay River Craven County N. C. 

Except of my love and respects for you and your Children and all your concerns, 

Farewell, James GRIFFIN

Will of Charles Rollings, 1830-1843 

Contributed by Elizabeth Ross. From the William Blount Rodman Papers, Coll. #329. 14. d, East 
Carolina University Manuscript Collection, J. Y. Joyner Library. These legal briefs are the only known 
extant reference to the will of Charles Rollins, written in 1830, amended in 1841, and probated in 
1843. His age was given as 87 in the 1840 Census, Pensioners Schedule. Because of his great age, 
several of his devisees, including his wife, died before him, leaving the settllement of his estate a 
complicated matter. Rodman, a lawyer in adjoining Beaufort County, made these notes (undated) 
sometime later, trying to resolve the terms of the will with the living heirs (grandchildren) of de- 
ceased children. Many of the grandchildren married and migrated to other states.
